Installed the Trucklites the other day. The headlights are not snug, they fit and all but the entire housing seems a little loose. Does the housing need to be trimmed at all? Anyone else have this issue?

Put 2-3 wraps of electric tape around the housing, then put the retaining ring on.

Checked my plugs and swapped headlights, one is definitely dead. Didn't even have them for a week.

Just did some digging and emailed Truck-lite. They do make ECE-approved LED Headlights. Both in 7" Round and 5x7. The trouble seems to be finding them for sale in the U.S. I emailed again for some more info.

The part number for the ECE 5x7 lights are: 27490c for Right Hand Traffic (US)

27290c for the 7" round RHT versions

These lights should have the improved pattern similar to many H4/E-code upgrades only with the improved output of LEDs. I'll let you guys know what I find out.

Just to follow up, Truck-lite emailed back and said any of their distributors can order up the part numbers for the ECE versions of the lights.

So I have $1000 worth of accessory lighting but I can't see driving down my street. I amazed that Chrysler is so stupid that they have not figured out we are willing to pay for a good set of headlights. When MB owned them you would think some of the technology would have came their way. I guess night as they are still using candles for light. We are willing to pay for quality lights Chrysler and you could use the money! How about a $1000 option for self leveling xenon lights? Had them on SLK that was 6 inchs off the ground and they were the best lights I have ever seen. New Jeep order how just sent $800 to an after market company because Jeep is asleep at the wheel!
Ordered a set of JW in Black with anti Flicker- $800 delivered for all was the best I could find.

I just installed JW Speakers on my 2013 JKUR and I couldn't be happier. I was blown away with how bright they are. The light pattern is very smooth and wide with a sharp cutoff. As a matter of fact, my stock fog lights don't even show up if I turn them on. I will most likely replace the stock fogs with the Speaker fogs at some point. I struggled with the cost initially, but now that I have them installed I have no regrets and wish I would have done it sooner.

Great choice…I also went with JW h/l and d/l. Then added ARB Intensity leds for off road.
The ARBs really eliminate the need for any other additional lighting.

This pretty much mirrors my observations after installing the JW Speakers. The old headlights really needed to have the fogs turned-on. The fogs plus the stock headlights combined made them decent. Now with JW speakers, there's no comparison. And you're right, the stock fogs barely show up when you turn them on. This spring, I'm probably going to buy the JW fogs. I'm going to wait since it involves me crawling beneath the Jeep and since it's been averaging 11 degrees here, and I still have snow and ice in my driveway, I'm not that desperate to upgrade.
